Charlotte Church: 'brave family'

#1
I'm working for an international group today and so didn't make it to the High Court to see Ms Church's celebration speech -the world doesn't really care about a tubby Welsh Singer who apparently sold her soul to Murdoch at the beginning of her career. (in lieu of payment for a gig she got endless PR from his papers).
She's 'won' £600,000 for what? losing a limb, an eye? No.... someone listened to her phone messages.

Apparently her family showed geat bravery during the case. This sort of crap from her lawyers is simply de-valuing the word 'Brave.'

What the family in fact did was to hold out for the biggest payment possible.

SIX HUNDRED THOUSAND POUNDS - think about it.

They're insured against this sort of action.
Good and their premiums will sky rocket.....

Don't forget there are thousands of them (victims),,then of course there is the criminal case inquiry......

Things can only get worse for News International..........

I think it is more of a worry that NI can start another paper without any problems, they should have been stopped until at least the inquiry is finished.

Then it will cost them more in the future. Her nationality, size, family and choice of words are neither here or there. The papers did the wrong thing. End of.
I agree with the decision that she was wronged - but why award such a large amount in damages. If you want to take punative action then fine the paper/NI to defray the costs of the bloody enquiry.

When you typed 'end of' did you fold your arms and nod your head in a grim, self satisfied manner? I bet you did.

Too much of this and that new paper, The Sun (Which in no way is connected with NOTW nor does it employ 70% NOTW ex employees) may have to put its prices up.

If you could gather every item of drivel and shite ever written about CC in the shitloids, I think 600K is probably a small price to pay in comparison to the profits made.

Not at all. Although in retrospect it seems a little pompous, please accept my apologies. Furthermore, I agree with the idea of defraying the costs.

The 600 grand is a headline figure of the cost to News International.
Aprox 300 grand of that went to lawyers. They always come out of these things the best.

& regardless of what I think of the singer herself, the blackmail job they did on her mother meant they, in my view, got away lightly. ('We understand you self harm & tried to top yourself, give us an interview about cos we are going to publish anyway')

Especially if it turns out they have been up to similar criminal activities in the states. If they're found to have hacked 9/11 victims they're finished.

Accepted ;-).

Are we sure that legal costs will come out of the award? I thought the aportioning of costs has yet to be decided.
(Might be wrong as I'm still recovering from having 2 hours of my life stolen by Julian Assange.)
